Description Thomas Carlson 2005-12-02 06:36:12 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
The installer gave me this error and allowed me to save it to a floppy disk...

This is on a pc chips m825g motherboard. V9.2.a VIA KM266 Pro socket 462 with Geforce GTS2 agp video card

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from cd
2. Gui install; linux at the fedora splash screen
3. Run through all the setup screens; transfer to disk image goes ok, two or three rpms installed and then crash message.

Actual Results:  Crash

Expected Results:  Rpms should install, reboot screen shows up, disk ejects and reboot cpu. Just like  FC4 does on the machine.

This is what I saved after the installer crashed. Pretty nice feature to be
able to save the output. :)

There are a lot of error messages from your CD in the syslog.  Did you check
your media?

Paul -- we need to handle this exception nicely and give people the media error
instead of just an exception :)

Upon double checking the cdrw disk with the test program at initial boot, it
showed a FAIL. I reburned it and the install worked fine.

Closing as report due to media issues
